Meet the team
We’re made up of experience, creativity, design, youth and passion.
After qualifying as a charted accountant with EY in Manchester in 1993, I left the profession for a year long stint in a business review role at ICI plc. Since then, I have been involved in property and construction and remain MD of our realted company Consensus Property Ltd. I am delighted to be working with Andy having been a friend for some 35 years. The addition of Ollie and Hannah to the team is tremendous with their innovative approach and ideas providing the perfect counter balance to us two old men.
With over 25 years of experience in the interior fit out industry, I started from site management working up to my senior project management role, over seeing projectsf rom £5,000 to £multi-million nationwide. Having been a French polisher I have an eye for detail and fine joinery work. Other than work my passion is playing Hockey where I have represented England masters in 2 world cups and other tournaments around the world.
I started my career learning the basics of admin in the industry preparing O&M manuals as well as arranging the procurement of site materials and trades and labours. Having always been one for a conversation as noted in my school reports Business Development was always my goal in the industry as well as organising our maintenance team.
Although I look after the company accounts, I originally gained my degree in History and English and hated maths! After a couple of years in an administration and marketing role at an events company I took an interest in finance and joined my father’s team at Consensus Property Ltd. As a result of my varied work experience, I’d describe myself as a “good all-rounder” who is always ready to crack on, take on another challenge and get stuff sorted!
I have been working in the interiors industry since I was 16 starting as a labourer. 5 years on I am a skilled tradesman and want to now start on the path of becoming a fully qualified site manager.
I firmly believe if you take your time and don’t cut corners you get a perfect job, I see myself as a perfectionist in my work.
After working weekends and in the summer holidays on site as a maintenance man and leaving sixth form with A,A,B,C, I decided University wasn’t for me and I pursued my passion which was working in construction. Since then I haven’t looked back and have since passed my SMSTS to become a fully qualified site manager. Bring on the future!!
Admin & Procurement
Since completing a degree in French at the University of Liverpool, I have worked in various industries, most recently in Advertising and IT within office management roles. After moving back to Manchester a few years ago following a decade in London, I am excited to join the team at Consensus
